Agbeleye Demilade Simileoluwa
I am Agbeleye Demilade Simileoluwa, a Nigerian resident ophthalmologist. I undertook my undergraduate studies at the prestigious University of Ibadan, practising in both urban and rural settings before proceeding into the residency program. I obtained my membership of the West African College of Surgeons in 2015 and have a passion for the unreached populations.
My desire to study at LSHTM for the MSc Public Health for Eye Care degree stems from a need to improve my research and public health skills in order to increase my sphere of influence and help reduce avoidable blindness in my nation, continent and the world at large.
Many thanks to the Commonwealth Eye Health Consortium and The Queen Elizabeth Diamond Jubilee Trust for the unique opportunity to study here.
